Eight Bells for Ocho

November 26, 2020 in Updates - 1 Comment

We lost our sweet boy two months ago on September 21. My heart is so heavy and my motivation to create content has been limited. We have lots of footage to edit, but the reality is that Ocho is in so much of it, I have not been able to face it. And, oddly, I’ve been struggling to shoot new footage because he WON’T be in it. All part of the grief process, to be sure, and at some point I know I won’t be so sad. These things can’t be rushed.

But, I wanted to drop in and let you know that we are still hard at work preparing for our sailing adventure. We have a big project in the works converting the batteries to lithium and putting in new solar. And, we’ll start the new year hanging off a mooring ball.

More stories to come! In the meantime, be well.

    It’s not the ocean and I’m not sitting on a sailboat, but having our land based home on this bend of the gentle Eagle River ain’t half bad. 🔹 Happy Friday y’all! 🔹 Tim’s been working hard on the boat back in CA, while I recover from Covid. I’ll be back to the Pacific next month. ⛵️☀️
    We had an amazing weekend with our first official guests aboard Felicità as full-time live aboards. 🔹 The sailing was awesome, the food was delicious, the drinks were cold, the euchre was competitive, and the laughs were the kind that make your cheeks hurt. 😎☀️♥️
